Default Where do Ash Wednesday ashes come from?

Informative report:

Its an Old Testament and a New Testament symbol of repentance and conversion, sorrow for our sins, awareness of our frailty and mortality - [symbols] that have been taken up by the Church from the earliest stages.

It also tells us where the ashes come from and how they are prepared:
John 3:27; John 15:5; Matthew 19:26
